Bears' Deon Bush: Finishes season as fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush had eight solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 15 games this season.

Bush played only 42 defensive snaps for the season through Week 15, but took over as a starter at safety after Eddie Jackson's ankle injury. Bush then started the final three games of the season -- including the wild-card loss to the Eagles -- and played well as a fill-in. the 25-year-old remains under contract for 2019 and is likely to serve in a reserve role at safety, though one the starting positions remains a question mark with Adrian Amos headed for free agency.

Bears' Deon Bush: Starting workload on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush is expected to start at free safety against the 49ers on Sunday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bush, who has not yet exceeded 15 defensive snaps in a single game this season, is on track to draw his first start against the 49ers. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday that he's "anxious to see him [Bush] play." If Bush is able to show well, he'll likely continue to start as long as Eddie Jackson (ankle) remains sidelined.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) avoided Wednesday's injury report, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bush's absence from Wednesday's report bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's game against Green Bay. While he'll likely revert to a special teams role, Bush provides the Bears with added depth in the secondary should they need it.

Bears' Deon Bush: Won't play Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Rams.

Bush's absence will mostly be felt on special teams. He has five tackles and one sack on the year.

Bears' Deon Bush: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Bush did not practice Friday, and he appears to be trending towards missing his first game of the season. The third-year pro has taken only two defensive snaps in his previous three games, so Chicago's defense would likely escape unscathed if he were unable to suit up Week 14.

Bears' Deon Bush: Tallies six stops in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush recorded six tackles in 13 games during his second NFL season.

Bush saw significant time at safety as a rookie in 2016, but with the Bears having drafted Eddie Jackson, he saw just 86 snaps this year. He'll enter the third year of a four-year contract, but unless the depth chart has some changes, he'll likely see most of his work on special teams.

Bears' Deon Bush: No limitations Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) was a full participant at the Bears practice Wednesday.

Bush sat out Sunday's loss to the 49ers after not participating at practice Friday, but he appears fully healthy this week. The 24-year-old could potentially have a larger role in Sunday's game against the Bengals with fellow safeties Adrian Amos (hamstring) and Deandre Houston-Carson (ankle) still nursing injuries.

Bears' Deon Bush: Won't suit up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the 49ers.

Bush joins fellow safeties Adrian Amos (hamstring) and Deandre Houston-Carson (ankle) on the inactives list, leaving Chicago short-handed in the secondary for Week 13.

Bears' Deon Bush: Status uncertain for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Bush should see a high defensive snap count if he can play Sunday, since Adrian Amos (hamstring) is doubtful. The second-year pro played six games as a full-time safety last season, accruing 20 tackles (15 solo) and one pass breakup. Therefore, even if he does play, Bush carries a low ceiling.

Bears' Deon Bush: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) was a full participant at Bears' practice Wednesday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Bush injured his hamstring in the team's season opener, and was unable to play in Week 2. He is seemingly back to full health now and figures to return to his special teams role Sunday against the Steelers.

Bears' Deon Bush: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Bush saw action primarily on special teams last week, finishing the game without a tackle. It isn't anticipated that his absence will impact the team greatly.

Bears' Deon Bush: May not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Zach Zaidman of Bears All Access reports.

Bush played 13 special teams snaps in Week 1 but didn't make a tackle. If he is unable to play, it'll be tough to project a timeline for his return, given that it's unclear when the injury was sustained.

Bears' Deon Bush: Inactive for regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bush was a limited participant in Friday's practice session, but ultimately wasn't up to the task for the team's final contest of the season. Harold Jones-Quartey should start at strong safety Sunday, with Demontre Hurst potentially subbing in if needed.

Bears' Deon Bush: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bush was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday but managed to partake in a limited fashion Friday. Look for Harold Jones-Quartey to start at strong safety if Bush is sidelined Sunday.

Bears' Deon Bush: Questionable to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (ankle) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Redskins.

Bush injured his ankle in the first quarter of Saturday's contest, leaving his status for the remainder of the game uncertain. Harold Jones-Quartey figures to take Bush's spot at strong safety for as long as necessary.

Bears' Deon Bush: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, and officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Texans.

Bush dealt with a variety of injuries during the preseason, with this hamstring issue being the latest. He was a limited in practice all week. He figures to provide safety depth for the team if he can go, specifically behind strong safety Harold Jones-Quartey.

Bears' Deon Bush: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Bush has dealt with multiple injuries this preseason, and it is unknown how serious this hamstring ailment is, but there will likely be more updates regarding the safety's status later this week. Bush will likely serve a backup role in the secondary this season.

Bears' Deon Bush: Sits out of Saturday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush is dealing with a head and neck injury and will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The exact severity of the rookie's injury remains unclear, but the Bears are likely playing it safe by resting him. Bush is expected to provide added depth to the secondary this season.

Bears' Deon Bush: Competing for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush will primarily be competing with Harold Jones-Quartey for the Bears' starting strong safety role, ESPN.com reports.

The Bears used a fourth-round pick on Bush, knowing he projects to pair up well with second-year free safety Adrian Amos. However, second-year safety Harold Jones-Quartey's aggressive play has been impressive throughout the early days of training camp, so this positional battle will likely be determined by performance in the preseason games. With the team having made offseason upgrades to the talent in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's defense, Bush is in line to pile up solid tackle numbers if he wins the job.

Bears' Deon Bush: Fourth-round pick for Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears selected Bush in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 124th overall.

Bush had poor pre-draft athletic testing for a safety of his modest build (6-foot, 199 pounds), but he was a standout player for a good Miami secondary in 2015. The Bears will presumably groom him as a strong safety.
